We just received the above tweet from @sandman804 contradicting previous claims that there would be a bonus disc included with the Target Exclusive edition of The Force Awakens.
The email from Target states that bonus content will be available through digital download via a unique code.
Target has posted the details for their exclusive Blu-Ray/DVD/Digital version of The Force Awakens coming on April 5.
Only at Target: Collectible packaging, plus 20 minutes of exclusive bonus content, including a never-before-seen interview with Daisy Ridley and John Boyega, and a deeper look at the movie’s weaponry.
UPDATE: Disney has confirmed that it will be available in advance as a digital download on April 1.
Here is an interesting, if not hilarious, store find. Local collector Phil G. sends in a couple photos from an area Target store (Quarry) that has figures affixed with a custom “No Rey” sticker in the style of the Free Boba Fett sticker from the Vintage Kenner era. This sticker reads:
No matter how many figures you purchase
(See #wheresrey for details)

UPDATE: here is a link to someone on Twitter claiming responsibility.
